Full Description

Hut Circle.
Centre of the vague outline of a 9m internal diameter hut circle, unusually set on gently, SE-sloping, broad, hummocky landscape, overlooked by two adjacent knolls to the N and E. Heather-covered walls of peat turf, with no visible stonework, are 1.5m thick and up to 0.4m high. There is a possible entrance opening towards 254 degrees and its most prominent walls lie on the NE side, on the SW side of a small, broad valley. The interior area is uneven, with a large hummock in the centre. <1>
